“The deceased has redefined the philosophy of simplicity and service of delivery, having lived a life of simplicity and struggle for the common people (Talakawa), the downtrodden.

“Even before his sojourn into politics, Gov. Balarabe Musa curbed a niche for himself as an incorruptible person.

“His death at this most trying period has robbed Nigeria of the champion of the voiceless who represented his people at all times,” he said.
